Study Group (ONLINE)

June 18 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 8:00 am on Thursday, repeating until 07/30/2020

During this time of separation, please join us online for our ongoing study of ancient and contemporary texts. The study group is facilitated by Rev. So-On Jim Hare, with readings from Mahayana Buddhism & Soto Zen texts and commentaries.
On June 11, we begin reading  Minding Mind; a Course in Basic Meditation, translated by Thomas Cleary.  This book presents meditation instructions written by seven Zen teachers associated with lineages in China, Japan and Korea.  Three of these “meditation manuals” were written by teachers who are counted in our Soto Zen lineage.

To join the Thursday morning study group, email the coordinator, Rollin Ives, twl4148@gmail.com
